The RBC Piano Extravaganza brings today's greatest pianists to the TSO for blockbuster programming 
February 4 - 14, 2015

 

Pianos in the City kicks off the festival on February 4 with Steinway pianos across downtown Toronto for free interactive programmes.

 

TORONTO, January 14, 2015 -  Wednesday January 14, 2015 – The piano is one of Western music’s most familiar instruments – a staple of popular songs and a star of orchestral repertoire, the instrument is mastered by powerful virtuosos and explored by children playing simple melodies. The TSO’s RBC Piano Extravaganza celebrates the instrument, its players and repertoire, and marks the début of the TSO’s new New York Steinway grand piano. Curated by GRAMMY® Award-winning pianist Emanuel Ax, the festival of concerts and community activities is presented in partnership with the Royal Conservatory of Music, and runs February 4 – 14, 2015.
